A handy special edition in hardback format, this timely reprint of the novel that evolved alongside the screenplay of Kubrick's classic, is likely to have become a collectors item already. In addition to the diversive main text's variations on the film's narrative

Richard Morgan's debut SF novel is a genre-breaking, hardboiled noir murder mystery, with body-swap identity crises and plenty of ingenious gadgetry that's used, and abused, in the service of mass slaughter and cyberpunk adventure.
